Considering how many reviews I have written in my career, I am surprised that
I haven’t come across more sites with an anime theme. Once regarded as more of
an Asian pastime, anime has definitely crept into the mainstream around the
world. So, when my bosses handed me the latest list of casinos to review,
LuckyNiki jumped out at me.

Now, I wouldn’t classify myself as a fan of anime, so it is easy for me to be
very objective when it comes to reviewing this casino. However, I want to ensure
that my fair, honest review includes mention of the overall theme of the casino
as it may be the one thing that draws a player in over any of the competing
sites online today.

As always, I am going to focus on the core of the casino: games, bonuses, and
support. Without those pillars, the rest of the site including the “host” Niki
aren’t worth mentioning. I love to find diamonds in the rough of any casino I
review, so let’s see if LuckyNiki has any gems for me to pass along to you!

Ratings Breakdown

Overall

LuckyNiki is one of the best casinos I have reviewed in a long time. Even
though they are a new entrant, the smartest move these owners could have made
was to have Skill On Net manage the operations of the business. This gave the
casino access to a multitude of software providers and excellent customer
service so the owners could focus on driving traffic to the site.

Game Variety

Holy cow, this casino also offers some sports betting! Yes, it is virtual
sports, but that is still a nice addition to the standard casino roster. The
only reason that LuckyNiki didn’t get a perfect score for game variety is the
lack of some additional video poker variants, but overall, I was very pleased
with what I found combing through the hundreds of games in the lobby.

Banking

There are all the standard payment options at this casino, including Bitcoin,
available for both deposits and withdrawals. I would say that the timeframe to
receive Skrill and Neteller withdrawals was a bit longer than I have found at
other casinos, which is odd to me as the e-wallets tend to be the fastest
methods for players to get their money. Aside from that, I think players will be
pleased with all the available options.

Bonuses

While the Welcome Bonus could be a little more aggressive, I will not take
any points off, because the rest of the promotions area is fantastic. The team
has done an excellent job of putting together a roster of ongoing bonuses that
will appeal to a wide array of players. And as you will read later, I couldn’t
be more impressed with the site’s VIP program (and the details they are willing
to tell players about). Well done!

Customer Service

I have not come across any complaints about the customer service department,
so it is tough not to give them a perfect score here either. The only slight
issue I had was the waiting time I faced when I tried to contact the casino via
live chat. I reached out either during a very busy time, or they don’t have
enough agents on staff. Either way, I would like to see this response time
tightened up a bit.

User Interface

While the host, Niki, is found on almost every page of the site, I wouldn’t
say she is presented in an intrusive way at all. The good news is that she can,
for the most part, be ignored. For me, I found the color scheme a little hard on
the eyes at times, and maybe it was my browser, but I found some of the banners
overlapping on certain pages.

Mobile Compatibility

No native apps are available for mobile users, but the majority of the over
600 games at LuckyNiki are accessible via the mobile browser, so it is hard to
knock the folks at this casino. When gaming regulations become more uniform
around the world, then I suspect we will see an app for LuckyNiki in our app
stores.

The Basics About LuckyNiki Casino

LuckyNiki is a new entrant in the online casino space, having launched in
2017. While the ownership behind the site seems to be cloudy, what I can tell
you is that the site is operated by Skill On Net, a white label operation that
allows owners to focus on marketing while handling all the day-to-day operations
of the casino for a fee. I actually like this model for newer casino owners.
Unless the ownership group has significant experience in the industry, a casino
can fail quite miserably. If there is a good amount of financial backing, then
farming out the operations to a third party not only helps with costs but with
overall management.

The LuckyNiki games are licensed under the Skill On Net Master License from
the Malta Gaming Authority. Something you should note here is that the Skill On
Net folks are responsible for the payment processing, meaning that they control
the bank accounts for deposits. This is excellent for player security, as the
company isn’t going to jeopardize their entire business based on a rogue
operator who takes off with player money. Overall, operations like this give me
a far better feeling of confidence than an individual operator.

The theme of this casino is, of course, anime. It centers around Niki, who is
the host of the casino. The owners have built a whole backstory for this
fictional character, which I suppose means something to fans of anime in
general. For me, I am not too concerned about where Niki came from, as long as
the casino she “hosts” all the pieces I need to consider it a worthy casino for
my readers.

While players from all over the world are able to access the real money games
at LuckyNiki, there are a few exceptions, including the residents of the
following nations.

  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Cyprus
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Mexico
  • Romania
  • Spain
  • Turkey
  • United States

Virtual Sports

When I started looking around the site in preparation for my playing session,
something unique struck me – the site has a full virtual sports betting section.
Most online casinos either stick to being focused on casino or bring in a full
sportsbook of which virtual sports is only one section. I really like the fact
that LuckyNiki is being progressive in adding only virtual sports to their
offering. These games have a synergy with the casino player, as they are games
that can be played easily while sitting at a card table or a slot machine.

For those of you not familiar with virtual sports, these are
computer-simulated versions of sporting events featuring actual teams and
statistics from their live counterpart. The popularity of these games comes from
the fact that a fan of a certain team can bet on them at any time, not having to
wait for an actual live match to take place. Also, the games only take a few
minutes to complete, which is far shorter than having to wait hours for the
completion of a wager.

You can bet on the following virtual sports and leagues at LuckyNiki:

  • Darts
  • Champions League Soccer
  • Soccer
  • Cycling
  • Tennis

You can also try these games for free, which means you have an opportunity to
give these a shot without having to risk any actual cash. You only need to
create an account to access the play money version of virtual sports betting.

The Casino

Well, that was a pleasant detour from my normal casino reviews! After
checking out the different virtual sports, it was time for me to turn my
attention to the casino games. I really like the way the games are laid out on
in the lobby. There are several categories of games, highlighting not only
different categories but also the most popular games at the site.

Game Variety

Checking out the lobby of LuckyNiki, at first glance I am thrilled with the
variety of games. There are hundreds of slot titles, and the layout of the lobby
makes it very easy to navigate to find the game you are looking for.

Software

This may be a new casino, but from a software perspective, you would think
that it has been around for a long time. The folks at Skill On Net not only have
their own games but have built a platform that allows for easy integration of
other pieces of software. Their relationships with these providers mean that
clients like LuckyNiki benefit by having a roster of vendors that includes:

  • Evolution Gaming
  • Net Entertainment
  • Extreme Live Gaming
  • Microgaming
  • SG Interactive
  • Aristocrat
  • Bally Technologies
  • Barcrest
  • Lightningboxgames
  • NextGen
  • Skill On Net
  • WMS

Seriously, I am impressed with the number of industry-leading software
companies being used at LuckyNiki. Now, let’s see how well they have been rolled
into one product.

Slots

After my first glance at the lobby, I knew I had to start my playing session
with the slot machines. If you are a fan of the reels, then you are going to be
in heaven at LuckyNiki. The main benefit of having so many different software
providers is evident in the slots titles. Here, you are going to find games with
every payline imaginable and designs from all the top developers in the market.
Not only that, some of the vendors have created partnerships with entertainment
brands to bring familiar characters to life in the casino.

Those of you who are like me and are more interested in winning a big jackpot
won’t be out of luck here. There are dozens of progressive jackpot slots
available, including several featuring jackpots currently sitting in the
7-figure range!

With well over 600 slots to choose from, I thought I would give you a list of
some of my favorites. This should give you a good start on your slots journey,
and please let me know your faves as well!

Video Poker

Why do I always go on about video poker in my reviews? Well, to start, I love
the game personally. I have played thousands of hours in land-based and online
casinos, and I never tire of the game. Also, if played correctly, the payouts on
some machines are very good, and while you might not hit a Royal Flush that
often, you will still get paid.

One of my favorite updates to video poker over the years is the ability to
play more than one hand at a time. This is why I am super excited by the
LuckyNiki offering. While the casino doesn’t have as many variants as I would
like to see, they do offer all their games in up to 100 hands at a time! That is
a real rush, especially when you are drawing to a big hand 100 times over!

Here are the 4 types of video poker you will find at LuckyNiki.

  • Joker Poker
  • Jacks or Better
  • All American
  • Deuces Wild

Table Games

With so many software partners to draw games from, this is the only area of
the casino lobby that I am not thrilled with. Honestly, I don’t know why casinos
leave out games that they are offered by a vendor – it isn’t like they take up
space! While I would like to see more games, the ones they do have should
satisfy the majority of my readers. This time I got into some 3 Card Poker
during my playing session. I forgot how much fun that game is, and if you
haven’t tried it before, I think it might be worth your time to give it a try!

  • 3 Card Poker
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Craps
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • Red Dog
  • Roulette
  • Sic Bo
  • Spanish Blackjack
  • Three Card Poker
  • Three Wheeler
  • TXS Hold’em
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Live Casino

Well, this is a real treat for players who like live dealer games. In most
cases, when a casino offers these games, they use one software provider for the
games. That in itself is excellent as there are still loads of sites that don’t
have these games in their lobbies. I love live dealer games, as the gameplay is
far more like a land-based casino environment. I also love being able to choose
from a pool of dealers, a very nice added touch to the live casino.

At LuckyNiki, you don’t just get software from 1 supplier, but from 3
different companies. Net Entertainment, Evolution and Extreme Live Gaming are
all found in the live casino lobby, which means 3 times the number of tables and
dealers to choose from! You can play all these games with a video-streamed
dealer.

  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em
  • Roulette
  • Super 6 Baccarat

Banking Options

While this casino doesn’t have as many unique payment methods as other
casinos I have reviewed in the past, there are certainly enough to take care of
almost everyone’s options. The payment solutions range from traditional credit
and debit cards to the newest payment method to hit the scene, Bitcoin.

As far as I can tell, the casino does not charge you any fees for depositing
or withdrawing your money, although your payment processor may have charges
built in on their end. From a timing perspective, it seems that Ecopayz and
Entropay are the fastest ways to get paid, although all your request will be
subject to a 24-hour pending period at the casino while their fraud team checks
your play before the turnaround times you see below.

Bonus Promotions

With such a great selection of games to choose from, it is easy to be
distracted from what promotions are available at LuckyNiki. Have no fear – that
is what I am here for! I dug into the promotions page and here are a couple of
offers that I want to review in detail for you.

Welcome Bonus

I always start with the Welcome Bonus, as this is typically the first
promotion any player will take advantage of at an online casino. There are 2
different thoughts about these bonuses. Some people like to see huge percentages
and numbers, while others want more realistic chances of converting the bonus.
Personally, I am somewhere in the middle. I think a site should make it possible
to convert some of the bonus, so you don’t lose faith in the site, while I also
think being aggressive with the amount is fine in many cases.

The LuckyNiki Welcome Bonus is really designed for the slots player. It isn’t
a huge amount – 100% up to $100 on your first deposit, but then the site adds in
100 free spins as well. The wagering requirement to clear the bonus is 30x the
deposit plus the bonus, which is on the high side but still within the industry
standards.

Daily Offers

I won’t go into the details of each of these offers as you can read about
them on the website, but what I do like is that there are multiple offers
available every day. More importantly, these offers appeal to different types of
players, not just slots players. I like the attention to detail the site has put
towards these ongoing promotions.

VIP Program

Loyal readers of my reviews will know how much importance I place on the VIP
Program offered by a casino. This tends to be a deal breaker for me when it
comes to recommending a casino or not.

The LuckyNiki VIP Lounge area of the site offers one of the most
comprehensive programs I have ever come across. Not only is the program
multi-tiered, but all the information on how to qualify for each level and what
rewards are available when you do qualify are explained on the site. Have a look
at the rewards given out to the top tiers of the program.

  • HUGE regular bonus offers
  • Member support from your own personal VIP Account Manager
  • Invitations to world-renowned exciting events
  • Great promotions to win big money
  • MASSIVE monthly FREE bonus awards
  • Faster payouts when possible
  • The sky is the limit for true VIP players!

I can’t say enough about this program – they have really knocked it out of
the park!

Mobile Compatibility

The Skill On Net platform allows for all of the casino games to be integrated
into a non-download accessible format. This means that players are going to be
able to play their favorite games without having to use their PC, as the mobile
browser found on most devices will accommodate the gameplay. I can’t guarantee
every device will work, but the majority are covered with this delivery method.

Customer Service

Okay, so I know the casino has a host, but does that actually help at all
from a support perspective? I headed to the support tab from the homepage and
found my answer. There is a ton of information listed to help players, including
a full set of Frequently Asked Questions. If you want to contact the casino, you
can choose from email, telephone, live chat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
However, don’t go asking for Niki, because she isn’t available.

Seriously though, I am very impressed with the level of detail once again put
into this section of the site by the LuckyNiki management team.

Summary

So, when I started this review, I wasn’t sure how I was going to react to the
anime theme or this fictitious host character. I like to just get to the tables
without any major distractions. I was pleased to find that while Niki is a
fixture at the site, how you interact with the character is totally in your
hands. There are hundreds of great games, a live dealer section to die for, and
an amazing amount of transparency when it comes to their support and VIP
departments. This review has been a real treat for me to write.

Verdict

There is no need for me to get too wordy here. If you are living in a country
that can access LuckyNiki, then I highly recommend that you give them a shot. I
am sure that you will not be disappointed.

FAQ

Does the site have any no-deposit bonuses?

They do! When you register your account, you will receive a notification that
you have received a small welcome offer that does not require a deposit. These
are typically a set of free spins on one of the site’s slot machines, but hey,
they are free, so everyone should take advantage of them!

How do I make a deposit with Bitcoin?

To make a Bitcoin deposit, you need to set up a Bitcoin wallet and buy the
cryptocurrency first. If you are having trouble doing so or need any help, then
you can reach out to the payments team at LuckyNiki, and I am certain they can
walk you through the process.

Where can I find out my VIP Status?

Your VIP points, status level, and the number of points you need to earn to
reach the next level can all be found in the “My Account” area of the website.
When you log in to your account, you will see that link on the top right-hand
side of the page. Contact support if you have any questions about the program
that cannot be answered on the page.

My bonus disappeared from my account. What happened?

If your bonus dollars have gone missing, it is most likely that they have
expired. You want to check the Terms and Conditions of every offer from a casino
to see how long you have to earn the bonus. The casino always has the right to
remove the bonuses for any reason. If you think it was done in error, then you
can just reach out to them to try to find a solution.

Why did this site spend so much time on the Niki character?

Well, all casino sites have themes, and fans of anime (and characters in
general) love to have as much of a backstory on them as possible. This is no
different than wanting to know more about a character you may like from a movie
or television show. Yes, anime may not be for everyone, but the choice to play
along is totally up to you.
